Like our last holiday, i hardly took any photos. Since doing photography for a living, holidays have been more of an occasion for downtime, away from the camera, laptop, iphone and distractions of twitter, facebook, email, rss feeds and information overload that’s normal life.
But one occasion when the camera came out was at night, to try and capture the night sky.
One lesson i learned is that you really need a rock solid tripod for this sort of thing. A rickety plastic table isn’t ideal.
And that the world spins remarkably quickly. The stars begin to blur after a 30 second exposure.
